Project In UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin

UpdraftPlus simplifies backups and restoration. It is the world’s highest ranking and most popular scheduled backup plugin, with over three million currently-active installs. Backup your files and database backups into the cloud and restore with a single click!

Backup into the cloud directly to Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3 (or compatible), UpdraftVault, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, DreamObjects, Openstack Swift, and email. The paid version also backs up to Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Backblaze B2, SFTP, SCP, and WebDAV.

Don’t risk your backups on anything less

Your WordPress backups are worth the entire investment you’ve made in your website. The day may come when you get hacked, when something goes wrong with an update, your server crashes or your hosting company goes bust – without good backups, you lose everything. Would you entrust all your hard work to a backup plugin with only a few thousand downloads, mixed reviews or no professional support?

Believe us: writing a reliable backup plugin that works consistently across the huge range of WordPress deployments is hard.

UpdraftPlus works. We’ll keep your backups safe.

Why you should backup your website.

WordPress like any CMS can be vulnerable to things such as server crashes, hacking, security flaws, bad plugin or theme updates and insecure web hosts. If anything happened to your website, it would cost you dearly in time, money and reputation.

Whilst other security measures are essential, backups are the ultimate insurance: they mean that, if the worst were to happen, your website (plus all related files and databases) stay safe, and can be restored in no time.

You could always create your own manual backups- but using backup plugin is infinitely quicker, simpler and safer. Life’s busy enough! With UpdraftPlus, you can simply “set and forget”, scheduling in automatic backups to save you time, work and hassle.

How UpdraftPlus compares with other backup plugins:

UpdraftPlus is the most highly-rated and popular plugin out there – and for good reason. Not only is it comprehensive in terms of its features, but it’s also easy and intuitive to use. And because it has such a vast user base, it’s tried and tested in a whole range of different situations and scenarios.

Unlike many other plugins, UpdraftPlus:

  • Restores, as well as backing up
  • Backs up to more cloud options than any others
  • Allows you to set up automatic backup schedules, for the ultimate in convenience
  • Is faster, using up fewer server resources
  • Has been tested on over 3 million sites

On our website, we’ve got a whole page dedicated to how our Premium version compares with the competition here

UpdraftPlus Premium

The free version of UpdraftPlus works just fine, but if you need more features and options you can purchase our Premium version. Here are some of the many features of UpdraftPlus Premium:

  • Incremental backups
  • Easily duplicates or migrates websites (with Migrator)
  • Multisite/multi-network compatible
  • Backs up non WP files and databases to multiple remote destinations
  • More storage destinations (e.g. OneDrive, BackBlaze, Azure, SFTP) and multiple destinations
  • Database encryption
  • Advanced reporting
  • Supports WP-CLI
  • Free dedicated expert support

Find out more on our comparison page. UpdraftPlus Premium is available for purchase here

Managing multiple website backups

We’ve also developed a brilliant new plugin that allows you to backup, update and manage all of your websites remotely from one central location. It’s called UpdraftCentral, and it comes in 2 different forms:

  • UpdraftCentral (free, self-hosted)
  • UpdraftCentral Premium (fully-hosted and “ready-to-go”, cloud version also available)

Instantly create a temporary clone of your site (UpdraftClone)

A temporary clone is an instant copy of this website, running on our servers. You don’t need to test or develop on your live site; instead, you can UpdraftClone it, and throw away your clone when done. Learn more about UpdraftClone here.

  • Easy: Press the buttons… UpdraftClone does the work.
  • Reliable: Runs on capacity from a leading cloud computing provider.
  • Secure: One VPS (Virtual Private Server) per clone, shared with nobody.
  • Fast: Takes just the time needed to create a backup and send it.
  • Flexible: If you want, test upgrading to a different PHP or WP version.

To create a temporary clone you need: 1) credit in your account and 2) to connect to your account. You can buy UpdraftClone tokens from our shop, here.

Are you multi-lingual? Can you translate?

Are you able to translate UpdraftPlus into another language? Are you ready to help speakers of your language? UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore itself is ready and waiting – the only work needed is the translating. The translation process is easy, and web-based – go here for instructions: https://updraftplus.com/translate/. (Or if you’re an expert WordPress translator already, then just pick out the .pot file from the wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/languages/ directory – if you scan for translatable strings manually, then you need to get these functions: _x(), __(), _e(), _ex(), log_e()).

Many thanks to the existing translators – listed at: https://updraftplus.com/translate/

There was initially a problem getting dropbox to work, but all was ironed out, and Updraft has been seamlessly doing its thing for many months now. Very happy to recommend.

I just updated my theme and it broke. Big Time.

Luckily for me I had updraft backed up site and restored just the theme. Wow, all good.

No lost plugins, pages, posts or media.

This has saved me days.

Thank you Updraft.

This is supposed to be the worlds best backup plugin for wordpress ? it may be the best premium one, but the free version is basically useless and it’s on purpose.
Let me tell you why it’s useless, because you can’t download a backup, you can only download parts of it.
So what happens when you can’t press the Restore button in case a wordpress update failed or your site got hacked, you know, when you actually need it ? nothing, because you can’t download the backup, it also means you can’t install a fresh copy of wordpress and restore your backup (like a lot of other plugins allow you to), all this is on purpose, because if you could download a backup, you could also use it to clone (migrate) your website, but migrating is a premium feature, so they had to cripple the backup to give you a reason to buy the addon.
So you can only use the free version if your site is already working, what’s the point of that?

I’ve installed this plugin after Backup Buddy stopped working on the site. I’m pleased to report that Updraft+ is working well and having no issues. ????

Have used it for a while now. Had no need to restore so cannot say about if it would work.

This is a solid, functional plug in…with a few areas for improvement. I find the configuration difficult to work with, especially when switching between different kinds of offsite repository, or switching between different users for the same repository (like Google Drive or Dropbox).

In particular, this plugin does not seem to work well with Dropbox, however it’s probably the fault of Dropbox itself. Backups to Dropbox are slow and prone to failure. Backups to Google Drive literally run 10 times faster, and seem quite reliable.

All in all, a good reliable product…once you get it configured properly.

I have used this plugin for many years to back up multiple sites, and the only failures that have occurred were due to my own misconfiguration.

My only criticism is that SFTP is considered a premium feature, so only FTP is available for sending the backup to remote machines. I feel like in this day and age everyone should be promoting good security practices. SFTP doesn’t require any special license or library, which is normally a solid reason to charge for it. This functionality is natively supported by PHP, so I feel like it should be provided out-of-box.

It works flawlessly and does its job as intended. That is why I recommend it. I have the free version and have to say thank you very much to the developers!
